Frames question on Stratus
I am rebuilding a Stratus for a friend. It appears the right side frame is different from that shown in the manual I have. In the manual it shows a thin "leg" out the front of the right frame that supports the battery tray. The frame piece I have does not have this. It appears that maybe there should be an update with a spacer and a small added carbon plate to replace this leg. Anyone have part numbers and or pics? My manual is from 2005 so that is likely why my frames are different than the manual. I looked the area over and the leg is not broken off, it is cleanly cut like the rest of the edges of the frames. I'm done withthe rebuild except for these pieces which I realized were missing when I was looking to put on the canopy mounts and had no place to put the one for the right side.

Thanks, Matt

Is it a standard Stratus
Or a High Ratio )the same as a Bobby watts version and HR version)?
Does it have the Framestiffneres?
Check out this tropic, it might tell you what Stratus you've got

The Stratus I'm rebuilding is a standard Stratus but I added the frame stiffeners during the rebuild.

My frame is identical to the one in the pic except it is cut off cleanly at approximately the red line. It appears to have been factory cut with a carbide burr like the rest of the frame. I am assuming that there must be another carbon plate that bolts to both the main frame side and the two channel shaped batter tray mounts. As it is now, the right side of the two channel shaped mounts are hanging out in space unsupported.

Thanks, Matt

According to MA, my side frame is broken, even though it is very cleanly cut. I will either have to buy a new side frame or cut up a couple pieces of carbon and make it work as is. I'm thinking the latter because I can have it done this evening and be just as strong as factory.

thanks, Matt

If it happened to me I would also repair it. No big deal! If you dont have a Stratus of your own then DONT test fly it but let your friend do it himself or else im sure you want one too and its not the most cheap helicopter but its heavenly to fly.

It is done. I made up a new doubler and a spacer to replace the stock switch mounting doubler.

I fly his Stratus' as well as my own but to be honest, I got a new Trex 700 that just feels perfect to me. I won't get rid of my Stratus or my Furys but the 700 is definitely something special.
